Dr. Monica D. Diggs

     Welcome to North Middle School!  My name is Dr. Monica Diggs and after teaching English-Language Arts for the past 23 years,  I am now one of the Reading Specialists for the 2021-2022 school year.  This is my 25th year in education, my 17th year in the Hazelwood School District, and my 14th year here at North Middle.   Prior to coming North, I worked at Kirby Middle School, Riverview Gardens Central Middle School, and St. Louis Public Schools.  I am a wife, and mother of three young adults, all of whom are former North Middle students and graduates of  Hazelwood Central High School.  I also have a new granddaughter who was born in November of 2020 and she is the joy of my life.  In addition, I have a pitbull named Cassius, who is my spoiled brat!   When I am not teaching and learning, I enjoy reading, watching Cardinals baseball, HGTV and MSNBC.  I also enjoy going to church and exercising. My two favorite quotes are "Stand up for what you believe in, because if you don't stand for something, you will fall for anything," and "It takes an entire village to raise a child!"
